Garrettsville Community Center Hosts Art Show


Garrettsville – Recently the Garrettsville Community Center located in Sky Plaza hosted an art exhibit for the James A. Garfield School District students with the hope of it becoming an annual event. The show featured flat pieces only since the center didn’t have a way to display or protect three-dimensional pieces. Art teachers in each building selected work from various students, K-12, to be displayed in the show. The show was an exhibition not a competition so no awards were given.   One of the art teachers stated that the Portage County Art Show had gotten so big that they were only able to enter a few pieces from a few students, this exhibit provided more students a chance to showcase their work. The art department hopes the show will continue to grow, allowing more students to have their work displayed for the community to see. The art show was open to the public and ran for three days May 13th-15th during regular business hours of the Community Center. The artwork was displayed on the walls of the center organized by grades.Congratulations to those students whose artwork was displayed. The school would like to thank the Community Center for all their hard work in organizing the show.
